April 22-24, 2024: 5. Freiberger Feuerfest-Symposium (5th Freiberg Refractories Symposium)

High-caliber industry meeting in Freiberg/DE with in-depth discussions on the topic “Refractory materials and the energy transition: spanning the gap between necessities, challenges and opportunities.” In 2024, the Freiberger Feuerfest Symposium will celebrate a small anniversary, as it will be held for the fifth time. The premise remains unchanged: The 2024 conference will once again focus on the latest findings as well as on practical experience relating to the new and ongoing development of refractory materials. Numerous renowned speakers from industry, research and development will be presenting their work, focusing on the challenges and opportunities that the energy transition poses for the refractory industry. A special focus this year will be the problem of hydrogen corrosion on refractory materials.

Around 150 experts from industrial furnace and plant engineering as well as from the application technology sector are expected to attend alongside installation companies, refractory manufacturers and representatives from research and development, and more than 20 specialist presentations are on the program: Once more, there is great interest in the symposium in Freiberg in central Saxony, which is jointly organized by Deutsche Keramische Gesellschaft (the German Ceramic Society), Deutsche Gesellschaft Feuerfest- und Schornsteinbau (the German Society for Refractory and Chimney Construction) and RATH AG. The series of talks will be opened by Prof. Klaus Dieter Barbknecht, Principal of the TU Bergakademie Freiberg and Vice Chair, Strategic Leadership Communities of the World Energy Council, who will present the topic “Key Aspects of the Energy Crisis – Market Failure”.
